These days, Taiwan's HTC is reportedly struggling to sell enough handsets to keep profit coming. Hence, to stay competitive HTC is applying strategies to add both low-end and high-ticket handsets to its kitty.
Of course, HTC will announce a successor to its flagship handset in the coming months, but the exact release date is unknown. Now according to famed Twitter sensation @evleaks, HTC is said to be working on a successor to HTC One. Codenamed M8, the device is said to be a long cherished successor to acclaimed HTC One. Alongside the M8, HTC is also rumored to be working on an update to Sense user interface (UI).
The latest version of Sense UI made its debut alongside the HTC One Max, a 5.9-inch FHD phablet. Rumor has it that the speculated HTC M8 will be the first handset to arrive with Sense 6.0.
The original HTC One was codenamed M7, so it is assumed that M8 would the much anticipated successor. Take this information as a pinch of salt due to the fact that HTC is also rumored to be working on a similar handset with Windows flavor. Few days back, it was revealed that HTC would announce a handset with aluminum body, and it might run Windows Phone 8 Update 3.
For quite some time HTC hasn't launched any new phone running Windows Phone 8. The street is abuzz with rumors that Microsoft has asked HTC to put Windows phone on its Android handsets. Reportedly, Microsoft is also ready to eliminate license fees.
Generally, HTC announces its flagship handset much before Samsung's big-ticket phone, so it makes sense to expect the HTC M8 around March, 2014. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
